World of Warcraft shows off its Benthic gear while the Classic server calls a wrap on another stress test

Depth perception is for fools, I guess.

Want to earn your new equipment in World of Warcraft by farming for items rather than praying for drops? The new Benthic gear available in Nazjatar will allow you to do that as something of an “advanced” form of traditional token gear found in late-expansion zones. Yes, you can use Prismatic Manapearls to trade for gear tokens, but you can also use them to upgrade the resultant gear, which also contains specialized bonuses tuned specifically for exploring Nazjatar. It should be a welcome system for players eager to gear up with farmed currency.

Meanwhile, over in the WoW Classic world, another successful stress test has concluded, although that of course means that the servers were stressed and not necessarily that everyone who wanted to play had full access to the game. Players already in the beta will still be able to play, however, so don’t stress out about that.

fun fact: benthic is the layer of sediment at the bottom of a body of water; also including all the plant and animal life, and all the other crude. So… yay! Bottom Feeder Gear!

Actually, benthic is just the deepest ecological ZONE, not (just) the sludge at the bottom.

Yes, correct you are. My marine bio is way old and rusty. Benthic layer is just one aspect of the entire zone itself. Definitions of the term often cite both universally though.
